Here's the thing that caught my eye, from Ray's piece in the Herald-Sun:
"Honestly, we came to Durham first because we thought Durham was the most open-minded and progressive city" in the Triangle, said Paul Hickman, Fairway's area general manager.
The word progressive also came up a lot in last week's presentation to the County Commissioners, also stage managed by K&L Gates on behalf of their client Southern Durham Development, Inc., for a rezoning application for the 751 South (nee 751 Assemblage) development.
So in addition to the pattern here, i'm wondering just who is defining "progressive" here, and why are we letting them do that?
More thoughts about what might constitute "progressive" in Durham later this week, after i soothe my sunburn.
